My MIL had mild dementia but went in to full hallucinations and couldnt be controlled since we live out of state (husband only child) I had my brother go stay with her until I could arrange for home care. He had to call 911 since he could not get her under control, she would not sleep, kept trying to go outside to the people and many people she was seeing in the house so by midnight called me, I told him to call 911. ER doc said she had dementia w/hallucinations needs 24/7 care. I said to admit her and he said Medicare will not pay if there is someone she can be released to (my brother) and if EMTs had brought her in alone then he could admit her. She has gotten much better and now on medicade program (has no assets) now has daily caregiver help for limited hours but is I think hallucinations may be coming back. What if she goes off deep end again or falls and breaks a limb, do I just call 911 and have her go to hospital and not have someone go see her otherwise they may not admit her. I am confused why she should not be admitted when she obviously needed help but unfortunately my brother (no blood relative to her) was there at my request. We do not have funds for 24/7 care they were all used up within the first two months. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
